Top five nonfiction picture books of the year

Seventy-seven years ago today, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, bringing America into World War II. Less a year later, the Japanese pilot Nobuo Fujita bombed Oregon twice in three weeks.

This week, educator Colby Sharp kindly included my book about that incident, Thirty Minutes Over Oregon, on his list of the year's top five nonfiction picture books. (He also did a lovely book talk on it a few months ago.)

Thank you again, Colby, and thank you to readers who have taken a chance on Nobuo's story. Congrats to the other books being recognized!
